Are there any tickets left?

What’s the story with security?

Under-16s attending the concert must be accompanied at all times by an adult over 25. Unaccompanied under-16s will be refused entry without refund. The promoter deems that large outdoor concerts are not a suitable environment for children under five.

Allow time for security checks on the way in. Bags larger than A4 size will not be permitted. All bags may be searched, and this can be time-consuming, so consider going bagless for easier entry. There will be no cloakroom or storage facilities. No alcohol – or food – is allowed into the arena.

Other banned items at the event include – but are not exclusive to – umbrellas, garden furniture, camping chairs, selfie sticks, flares, glasses or cans.

There is also no re-admission to the concert, so if you leave, you cannot re-enter.

Can I take photographs at the concert?

Smartphones and small digital cameras are permitted, but cameras with long or detachable lenses, or recording equipment, are not. GoPros and iPads are also prohibited.

What’s the weather forecast?

The forecast is for temperatures between nine and 15 degrees, with little to no rain expected. St Anne’s Park is a standing-only venue, and all gigs take place outdoors on grass, so regardless of the forecast, dress accordingly for Irish weather – think wellies, boots or runners, layers, raincoats/ponchos and suncream.
